Kashmir: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s upcoming all-party meet in Jammu and Kashmir on June 24 is making echoes even in Pakistan. The neighboring country has made a statement about PM’s meeting with the J&K leaders.
Pakistan said on Saturday that it would oppose any move by India to divide Kashmir and change its demography.
Pakistan’s Foreign Office said in a statement that Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has stated that India must refrain from taking any further illegal steps in Kashmir after its actions of August 5, 2019.
Qureshi’s statement comes few days ahead of PM Modi’s meet with 14 leaders in the valley.
The high-level meeting to be chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi on June 24 is expected to set the road map for holding assembly elections in the Union Territory.
Tensions between India and Pakistan have spiked since the Modi government abrogated the Article 370 of the Constitution to revoke the special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, 2019.
India’s decision evoked strong reactions from Pakistan, which downgraded diplomatic ties and expelled the Indian envoy.
